Start to nutritionally manage her itching, whether from food or environment, in as little as 3 weeks. The nutrition in Iams® Veterinary Formulas Skin & Coat - Response™ LB formula can help nutritionally manage your cat's itching and scratching. So whether her sensitivities are coming from food, her environment or both, you can promote a healthy skin and coat through:
- A balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in ingredients such as canola and fish oil, can nutritionally manage her itching and scratching
- A combination of unique proteins and carbohydrates, which can reduce the risk of a reaction to food
- A complete vitamin and mineral package, which restores nutrients to develop a healthy skin and coat
- An optimal level of linoleic acid, which is found in high-quality animal-based protein (without enough linoleic acid, your pet may experience a dull/dry coat, hair loss, oily skin and increased susceptibility to skin inflammation)
How can Response™ formulas help?
Response Formula is designed to aid in the nutritional management of skin and coat health in several ways. First is through fatty acids. Specific types, called omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, are important. Response LB has an adjusted balance of these two fatty acid types.
Second, Response Formula includes alternate protein and carbohydrate sources, which can be important if your veterinarian suspects that your pet's skin condition may have a food sensitivity component. Response LB, for example, contains protein from lamb meat and carbohydrates from barley.
